A journey to Italy!
We continue our journey in the footsteps of Paul in Italy. Italy is filled with ancient biblical history, culture and spiritual blessings. Visit the places that witnessed the events of such decisive and enduring importance of the message and ministry of the New Testament.
This journey will provide you a deeper understanding of scriptures traveling thru the lands of the Bible. You will get a closer look at the life of Paul and His mission of redemption. When you make this journey in the company of friends and others of like mind, you can look forward to an unforgettable experience. Picture the theater imagery (1 Cor. 13:1) and meat market arguments (1 Cor. 8-10) at Corinth that can be very easily understood by looking at the excellently restored versions of these at Pompeii – where the pyroclastic material froze a city in time from about a decade after Paul’s death. In fact, most of what we Bible scholars understand about the Roman world of the New Testament is based on excavations and discoveries found within a day’s drive of Rome.
This pilgrimage is so different than the normal trip you will see. We kept in all the sites that make Italy the magnificent country it is. Yet, we have expanded so we can feel and experience what Paul wrote. At the end of this tour two things will most certainly be changed, you, and your understanding of the Bible.
